Children aged 8-13? Join Wildlife Watch

Across the UK we run hundreds of events suitable for children. If you are family members of Shropshire Wildlife Trust, your children will automatically become members of the Wildlife Watch scheme, which entitles your child to discounted children and family events. The aim of the Wildlife Watch scheme is to encourage children to engage in their environment and the issues affecting it.

By joining Wildlife Watch children can…

  • Take part in discounted events
  • Become a nature detective and earn awards through the Wildlife Watch award scheme
  • Benefit from receiving the Wildlife Watch pack and quarterly children's wildlife magazine full of activities, facts and ways to help wildlife
  • Have access to the Wildlife Watch handbook which contains wildlife facts and pages to keep a diary of wildlife sightings
